Beijing Capital, in response to the increasing demand of travel in the Chinese market to destinations such as Europe and The Americas, has launched over the past year, direct air services to Europe including: Madrid, Lisbon – the first direct connection between China and Portugal; Moscow, London Heathrow as well as Melbourne, Sydney and Vancouver. These services also open up the skies for passengers wishing to travel to China and beyond.
Nissim Sagis, Chief Commercial Officer of TAL Aviation "We are very excited at what this new cooperation will bring. We have expanded over the last three years our ties with Chinese companies and this new agreement with Beijing Capital Airlines is another step in the trust that Chinese carriers have voiced with TAL Aviation. China is of course, much more accessible to travelers from EMEA, visiting and experiencing the wonders of this beautiful country. At the same time, we are happy to be part of a cooperation which will assist in welcoming more Chinese travelers to our market destinations that Beijing Capital is servicing".
